Security ID Procedures at Facilities

An identification card is required to access Water & Sewer Department (WASD) facilities. The ID Office is located at 3071 SW 38th Ave., Room #206, Miami, FL 33146 (the Douglas Road Administration building).

The phone number is 786-552-8271 and fax number is 786-552-8778. Hours of operation are 8 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

Appointments are required every day except for walk-ins as noted below.
  • Tuesday walk-ins are for WASD employees only from 6 a.m. to noon.
  • Wednesday walk-ins are for contractors, consultants and temps only from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Non-Department Employees

    Access to all WASD sites is controlled. All non-WASD employees required to enter a WASD facility for more than five days per calendar year will be required to obtain a WASD-issued ID badge. All non-WASD personnel are subject to a criminal history background check. A WASD ID badge can be obtained by submitting the following documents:

    Prior to commencement of work, the non-WASD employee shall meet with the Plant Superintendent and WASD Security Management to submit the required information and review security parameters related to the project.

  • Department Employees

    All persons permanently employed with WASD are required to obtain a WASD-issued picture ID badge. An annual fingerprint-based criminal history check will be conducted upon renewal of the ID badge for those employees with access to designated restricted areas. A WASD ID badge can be obtained by submitting the following documents:

  • Visitors

    All visitors to WASD facilities must be invited guests of the department. All persons to whom a WASD ID badge has not been issued will be issued a visitor's badge. All visitor badges are valid for the day of issuance only. Visitor badges are intended to be recovered and must be returned by the visitor upon existing.

    Visitors shall only be authorized access to those areas specific to their business. Unauthorized roaming through other areas of a plant or facility is prohibited. All visitors to a WASD-designated restricted access area must be issued an appropriate badge and escorted by an individual with access to that specific restricted-access area. They must remain accompanied by the escort at all times. There will be no exceptions to this requirement.

    ID Badges must be worn conspicuously on the outer garment of the bearer, in plain view above the waist at all times. The contracted security guard force staff will enforce this requirement. Visitor vehicles must park in designated areas.

  • Contractors/Day Laborers

    Temporary labor badges are issued at the facility checkpoint. Temporary badges are issued for one single day and for specific areas of access only. ID Badges must be worn conspicuously on the outer garment of the bearer, in plain view above the waist at all times.

    The contracted security guard force staff will enforce this requirement. Day laborers must park in designated parking areas.

  • Vehicles

    Vehicles will enter only through the facility security checkpoints. Vehicles will be parked in designated areas within the facility.

  • Tours and Speakers

    Tours of our treatment plants and speakers regarding the department and/or water conservation can be requested by submitting a request form.
